Manchester City, Man United, Arsenal match highlights .

Erik ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United, is under less pressure after Bruno Fernandes’ stoppage-time winner at Fulham gave Arsenal their first Premier League loss of the season on Saturday.

 

With a 6-1 thumping of Bournemouth, Manchester City shot to the top of the table, but the English champions suffered a setback as Erling Haaland hobbled off with a twisted ankle.

 

Newcastle overcame a growing injury crisis to win a tough match at St James’ Park 1-0 and move up into the top six.

 

Anthony Gordon’s contentious victory Before it was eventually awarded, it had to survive a VAR check for three separate offenses in 25 minutes.

 

Gabriel said that Joelinton, his Brazilian international teammate, had fouled him prior to Gordon smashed the ball into an empty net when it broke.

 

Checks for offside and whether the ball had previously been out of play during the move came up empty-handed.

 

Arsenal’s inability to muster a response against a makeshift Newcastle defence exposed their lack of a world-class number nine in the absence of the injured Gabriel Jesus.

 

After two straight 3-0 home losses to City and Newcastle last week, Ten Hag’s future at Old Trafford was called into question.

 

At Craven Cottage, United was once more far from spectacular, but captain Fernandes helped them secure a much-needed three points.

 

The Portuguese midfielder’s effort from the edge of the area squirmed past Fulham goalkeeper Bernd Leno with just too much power into the lower corner to give the team a 1-0 victory.

 

Ten Hag said, “He consistently demonstrated that he is an example as a captain.” “You can see how hard he is working and pressing today, and he scored the goal in the end.”

 

In contrast, City lost Haaland at halftime but still easily secured their three points.

 

The Belgian winger Jeremy Doku stole the show as he opened the score and contributed significantly to four more goals.

 

“He’s a great footballer – he surprised all of us,” Pep Guardiola said in reference to Doku’s influence.

 

“His ability to alter the rhythm in just five meters is amazing. When he can no longer dribble, he makes wise decisions, and I find that impressive.”

 

Bournemouth waited to for thirty minutes at the Etihad, but as soon as Doku poked into the far corner following a one-two with Rodri, the floodgates opened.

 

Doku set up Bernardo Silva for the goal; after striking Manuel Akanji, his effort soared past Andrei Radu in the Bournemouth net.

 

Haaland did not reappear in the second half and was not moving freely during the last minutes of the first half.

 

His substitute After another Doku assist, Phil Foden scored the fourth goal for Pep Guardiola’s team twenty-five minutes from the end.

 

Bournemouth responded with a goal thanks to Luis Sinisterra.

 

However, Silva scored his second goal of the match with a daring finish, and City had the last say when Nathan Ake made a diving save.

The Bees overcame a 3-2 deficit to defeat West Ham, but Brentford prevailed in the day’s matchup.

 

Brentford took the lead early on thanks to a goal from Neal Maupay, who had not scored in 45 games. However, Mohammed Kudus and Jarrod Bowen gave West Ham a reply goal.

 

Thomas Frank’s team tied the score again through an own goal by Konstantinos Mavropanos, but Nathan Collins’ huge header won it 20 minutes from the end.

 

Dramatically, Sheffield United defeated Wolves 2-1 thanks to a penalty kick from Oliver Norwood in the 100th minute, earning them their first victory back in the Premier League.

 

While a victory does not raise the Blades off the bottom of the table, they do move to within two points of safety and level on points with Burnley.

 

Burnley was the inaugural Premier League team Tyrick Mitchell and Jeffrey Schlupp goals helped Crystal Palace win 2-0 at Turf Moor, making them the first team to ever lose their opening six home games of the season.

 

Ashley Young’s late own goal saved a 1-1 draw for Brighton at Goodison Park, denying Everton their third straight victory for the first time since September 2021.
